ST. THOMAS SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS
These scholarships and grants are funded by the university or
established by donors as gifts to the university. Recipients
are selected according         to   the    terms     of   the
scholarship program or the donor. Incoming first-
year students who are offered a St. Thomas
Scholarship or Founders Grant may receive funding for
eight semesters (fall and spring semesters only) or until
graduation, whichever comes first, provided the student
meets the necessary renewal criteria. To renew St. Thomas
Scholarship funding, recipients must remain consecutively
enrolled as a full-time St. Thomas student, achieve at least
a 2.0 grade-point average and maintain satisfactory academic
progress (see page 16). Recipients of some scholarship
funds will be contacted by the St. Thomas Development
Office with instructions on sending a letter of appreciation
to the donor of their funds. Scholarship funds that require a
thank-you letter will be disbursed to a student’s St. Thomas
account after the Development Office notifies the Financial
Aid Office that this requirement has been satisfied.

to secured loans such as car loans or home mortgages that
require collateral. A student’s eligibility to borrow a private
educational loan is based on the terms of each loan and
the student’s overall credit profile, including repayment on
prior credit obligations, and their current use of credit. A co-
signer generally is required. More information is available

FEDERAL PLUS OR PRIVATE LOANS:
 WHICH IS BETTER?
Before borrowing any supplemental loan (PLUS or private), we recommend that all students utilize the federal subsidized
or unsubsidized loans they have been awarded. Even though a student’s federal loan eligibility may not provide the total
amount needed to cover their remaining expenses, it is still in the student’s best interest to take advantage of federal
funding rather than securing one larger supplemental loan for the total amount needed. When deciding what type of
supplemental financing to use in conjunction with a student’s federal loan eligibility, we encourage families to consider
the differences between the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan and other private educational loans.

HOW TO OBTAIN A FEDERAL LOAN
The Financial Aid Office at St. Thomas automatically awards
Federal Direct Loans based on financial aid eligibility, which
is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid
(FAFSA). Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans are available,
but are not automatically awarded. Students and parents
who participate in federal loan programs are required to
have their loan records submitted to the National Student
Loan Data System (NSLDS). Loan records on NSLDS will
be accessible to guarantee agencies, lenders and colleges
determined to be authorized users of the data system.

FEDERAL DIRECT LOANS
To obtain a Federal Direct Subsidized and/or Federal Direct
Unsubsidized Loan, students must accept the loan(s) via
Murphy Online. Once loans are accepted, students borrowing
for the first time at St. Thomas will receive a request to take
the following steps:

Entrance Loan Counseling
This online counseling requires student borrowers
to read and answer questions about the Federal Direct
Loan Program. It is intended to inform students of their
rights and responsibilities as borrowers in the program.
Go to studentloans.gov to learn more and complete a
counseling session.

Complete MPN
The MPN is the official document a student borrower signs
promising to repay his orher Federal Direct Loan. The MPN
is completed online at studentloans.gov using your FSA ID
as an electronic signature. Students who have borrowed in
a previous year from the Federal Direct Loan Program may
not be required to complete another MPN.

FEDERAL DIRECT PLUS LOAN FOR PARENTS
To apply for a Federal Direct PLUS Loan for Parents, the
parent borrower must log in to studentloans.gov using
their FSA ID username and password and select “Apply for a
Direct PLUS Loan.” Information on this form will be used by
the U.S. Deptartment of Education to initiate the application
and credit authorization on the parent’s behalf. The parent
borrower listed on the application or credit authorization
must sign an online MPN using his or her FSA ID before any
loan funds may be disbursed.
